Nosing: Peat Smoke Oak Oil Nuts Honey
Smoke, more coal/wood than peat. Heating oil, Some nutty / earthy notes. Some honey sweetness showing through the smoke.

Taste: Sweet Peat Smoke Fruit
Sweet arrival. Peat smoke, definite tarry elements to it. Remains fairly sweet throughout, almost toffee like. Doesn't get acrid like a lot of peated malts. Once you get acclimatised to the smoke some general fruitiness shows through.

Finish: Bonfire Smoke Fruit
Long, with lots of bonfire smoke, residual fruitiness.

Comment:
This is a very nice compromise for people who like a bit of peat in their whisky but don't want their heads blown off by it. There's enough character here to make this worth a try for sure. It's a little more expensive for a young whisky, but it is bottled at a good strength and isn't so rough around the edges as to be unpleasant. Very much worth a try.
